The pioneering social justice, media advocacy, and creative productions made by Paper Tiger Television over the past 25 years have influenced generations of media artists and activists around the world. This documentary tells the story of how the collective has combined media art, media activism and media analysis to create a new kind of television and provide a true alternative to the mainstream. This jubilant mosaic of media myth-smashing archival footage features interviews with media scholars, media critics and over 20 current and past Tigers.

 

Paper Tiger Television (PTTV) is an open, non-profit, volunteer video collective founded in 1981. Through the production and distribution of public access series, media literacy/video production workshops, community screenings and grassroots advocacy PTTV works to challenge and expose the corporate control of mainstream media. PTTV believes that increasing public awareness of the negative influence of mass media and involving people in the process of making media is mandatory for our long-term goal of information equity.
